Welcome To The Team

Our FROGS Swim Team programs offer a fun and challenging environment for swimmers who can already demonstrate basic skills and are ready to take those skills to the next level! We welcome dedicated swimmers who want to compete with teammates and improve their skills. Youth who join YMCA swim teams not only become better swimmers, they also learn camaraderie, discipline and respect.

Our Swim Team goals are:

  • To help swimmer reach their full potential as confident swimmers.
  • To help swimmer learn good sportsmanship and being part of a team.
  • To help promote lifelong fitness for all of our members.
  • To teach swimmer character development including Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility.

Join FROGS

Our coaches encourage swimmers every step of the way to improve and do their personal best while training together as a team. Being on the swim team is a great way to meet new friends, work out and have fun - all at the same time! We welcome those ages 5-17 who have passed levels 1 and 2 or are capable of swimming the length of the pool on stomach and back unassisted. The summer season lasts approximately 7 weeks while the winter swim team ranges from October-March. The summer season is great for swimmers who are just starting the swim team. The winter season is best for experienced swimmers who already completed at least one summer season.

Lindsey's Law Info

Who is Lindsay?

Senate Bill 252 is named for national heart health advocate and former Miss Ohio Lindsay Davis who suffers from a heart condition and has since dedicated her career to raising awareness of this potentially fatal condition.

"Sudden cardiac arrest is the number one killer of student athletes," said Davis. "At any moment I could have died because coaches and teachers had no idea this was even a possibility for someone who looked as healthy as I did at that age."

Lindsay’s Law

Lindsay’s Law, Ohio Revised Code 3313.5310, 3707.58 and 3707.59 went into effect in 2017. 

In accordance with this law, the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the Ohio Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and other stakeholders jointly developed guidelines and other relevant materials to inform and educate students and youth athletes participating in or desiring to participate in an athletic activity, their parents, and their coaches about the nature and warning signs of sudden cardiac arrest.
